Rivka was so brilliant and had so much potential. What a terrible loss, to her parents and to Klal Yisroel 😭

So true!
Such a sweet, special young lady.

Terrible tragedy for her wonderful parents,…. and for everyone who knew and loved her.

It’s sad that, often, the good – the really good – die young.

I remember the good ole days with her family in Crown Heights
and Pittsburgh.

Ad Masei?!

May Hashem comfort her parents, who are such kind people and waited for many years for her special soul to enter this world.

I met Rivka some years ago and she was one of the most wonderful humans I’ve encountered. She was brilliant and sharp, and at the same time humble and sweet. She was adventurous but also respectful of the tradition. This is a tragedy and she will me profoundly missed.

I remember Mordechai and Chana from their days in Minnesota. The sweetest, most soft spoken people, and their baby daughter Rivka who was born right before they moved away. May Hashem send them comfort in this difficult time

I remember as a young girl in Pittsburgh. She was a sweetheart. BDE.

So sorry for this tragic news BDE.

My heart is broken for Chanah and Mordichai who were the most loving parents. Rivka was so beautiful, kind, and brilliant while so very humble at the same time. There are no words for this untimely loss. May HaShem comfort you during this time. Ad Masai.

My condolences

Rivka, I miss you terribly. You impacted my life in the most beautiful way. Your light so radiant and warm. I am wishing comfort And healing to all those who mourn you. You left this earth too soon. I am blessed to have known you.

I babysat Rivka many years ago in Minnesota (she was probably around six or seven at the time) and even at that young age, she struck me as someone truly special and pure. May Hashem grant her parents comfort and expedite the coming of Moshiach.

I am heartbroken to hear this tragic news. I remember Rivka from my high school years. She was a brilliant woman who radiated kindness,  compassion, and menschlichkeit. She accomplished a lot in her short life and was truly a special person. A courageous soul who was taken from us too soon. May HaShem comfort her parents in these difficult times. 

Too much, too much...

To Rivka’s parents: I never met your daughter Rivkah A’H but from what I’m reading you were blessed with the zchus of being parents to a truly outstanding and unforgettable person. There are no words on earth to comfort parents who suffer such an unthinkable loss. We all anxiously wait for Eliyahu Hanavi to answer the unanswerable for us. In the interim we follow the Aibershter’s law and say “Hamakom yinachem es’chem b’soch sh’ar aveilei tziyon ve’rushalayim.” May you experience only simchas from here on in.

This is heartbreaking. I met Rivka during workout classes at the Wightman Community Building in Squirrel Hill. We kept in touch throughout the years. Such a lovely girl. I loved her adventurous spirit and kind heart. Sending peace to her family during this difficult time.
